Alicia Keys stuns at awards

Alicia Keys rocked three looks at the ARIA Awards last night.

The 32-year-old songstress took on the dual role of performer and presenter at the event in Sydney and made sure she had enough gowns to cover all bases.

For her appearance on the black carpet, Alicia chose a fluorescent yellow Stella McCartney dress which showed off her amazing figure.

The fitted number clung to her curves, with a sleeveless design emphasising the star's toned arms and cutaway sides exposing her flat stomach.

A metallic belt cinched in Alicia's tiny waist and Jimmy Choo heels and Mimco jewels provided the finishing touches.

While performing, the Fallin' singer ditched the colour in favour of a monochrome number.

The mother-of-one looked amazing in a patterned crop top with a pencil midi skirt by Manning Cartell as she belted out a medley of her hits for the audience.

Alicia was also asked to present the best female artist award, which went to Australian R&B star Jessica Mauboy.

This time the singer reached for an elegant Toni Matičevski dress and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.

The bodycon number was a flattering midi length and again showed off all of Alicia's curves.

Alicia wore her hair up in a punky style with shaved sides and volume on top.

Bringing some gothic glamour to the awards yesterday was New Zealand-born singer Lorde.

The 17-year-old wore a floor-length black dress with three-quarter-length sleeves.

Usually sporting untamed curls, the singer surprised by slicking her hair into a neat up-do for her performance of hit Team.

    2015 Acura TLX blends two sedans into one alphabet soup

    Nearly three decades have passed since Honda gave us the car we didn’t know we wanted: a fancified Accord called the Legend, which Honda sold under a newly created luxury brand called Acura. Acura, along with the Lexus and Infiniti brands that followed, proceeded to turn the luxury market on its nose. But since then, everyone from Hyundai to Bentley has stepped up its luxury game while Acura got a bit lost in ubiquity with a cadre of similar-looking products, all with confusing alphabet soup names like ILX, TSX, TL and RLX.

    2015 Dodge Charger goes under the knife

    Over the past decade, Chrysler's rear-wheel-drive sedans have managed to survive a bankruptcy and three different corporate overlords. Thanks to the original stoutness of the Mercedes-assisted chassis, and the periodic updates that keep them from seeming like 21st-century versions of the Ford Crown Victoria, the Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger combo still draw in fans. Today, Dodge revealed yet another redesign for the 2015 Charger — and for an old car, it's quite the change.

    By Narae Kim JINDO South Korea (Reuters) - More than 280 people, many of them students from the same high school, were missing after a ferry capsized off South Korea on Wednesday, in what could be the country's biggest maritime disaster in over 20 years. It was not immediately clear why the Sewol ferry listed heavily on to its side and capsized in apparently calm conditions off South Korea's southwest coast, but some survivors spoke of a loud noise prior to the disaster.
